Murky History

This 911’s history is murky, he says, but it may have been raced by Florida’s Brumos Racing. (Racing legend Hurley Haywood, a Brumos driver at the time, says he doesn’t remember this car specifically.)

Heavily modified, it has race shocks, a mechanical fuel injector and a fuel cell for containing gasoline spills in case of a wreck. It is far from period perfect -- the steering wheel and the stick shift are both after-market for instance -- but it is pristine. It fires up without a hitch.
